    How much are those recent gold trumpeter ones worth, Brian? I'm about to stick one up.

    Also shocked at that other HSM! I pass over all of those. Is that a recent label? It's not one I'm familiar with.

    I just switched to photobucket per your advice earlier in the thread. Imgur finally sent me over the edge.

    One last question, what the hell is this pattern? No clue what to call it.

    Obviously, that's par for the course with robert graham, but I can hardly market it that way.

    I have the new label gold listed for $195 BIN OBO and will let it sit for a while before reducing the price. I think easy $100+ no problem at all. The other label (the one that sold) it the slightly older HSM label I THINK. Not 100% positive, but I only see it maybe once a week. The pattern of the jacket that sold has something to do with the higher price along with it being a pretty good size in 42L.

    Photobucket does make life easy once you get the hang of it.

    How long would you characterize as "for a while?" 2 10-day listings? 3? 4? What kind of turnover do you guys look to get?

    Yep, all the time. No problems here. But you may want to read back a few pages. The best shipping methods are discussed in great detail.
